Nitehawk’s December Country Brunchin’ presents Robert Altman’s McCabe & Mrs. Miller featuring a live pre-show performance by The Birdhive Boys!
It’s getting cold out so hunker down at Nitehawk to see Altman weave the tale of a business partnership gambler (Warren Beatty) and a prostitute (Julie Christie) in a remote Old West mining town in McCabe and Mrs. Miller. Their’s is an unlikely bond formed between two very different people that only strengthens when a big corporation comes in to take over the developing town. You know the story, independent men battle it out with “the man” over the ability to keep their land. Of course, McCabe refuses and that only leads to big trouble for Mrs. Miller and the rest of the town.
The Birdhive Boys are a Brooklyn-based bluegrass outfit playing standards and originals in the bluegrass style. They’ve recently finished a 5-song EP, available for purchase through the band. The Birdhive Boys have shared the stage with NY bluegrass heroes Michael Daves and Greg Garing, as well as Grammy winners Dailey & Vincent.
